    This workshop took me to some unexpected places….some great, some very hard, but most of all very much needed! I was able to reflect on why I do things that I do, not just with my photography…but on a personal level. To be completely out of my comfort zone, and being made to think outside the box, and push myself harder with each assignment.

    Courtney is such a beautiful soul, extremely talented, a very hands on instructor, always there to encourage, be honest, and help you to be the best you, you can be. She is always available, and very quick with her responses to any questions you may have. It is obvious she put her heart & soul into it, and it’s not only very informative, but very well written & filled with her gorgeous work throughout.

    I believe that everyone should take this workshop, for self reflection, you’ll come out on the other side so much better because of it. It’s certainly helped me with my journey, and something I’ll always refer back too. I’m very pleased with my results. Thank you very much, Courtney! ❤️

    Having taken the I&A course – I know, know, know this PDF will be one needed in your list of reference books. I don’t think it matters where you are in your photography journey – 2 weeks or 20 years in – this information is incredible for growth and personal development. Courtney puts her heart and soul into all that she does — and this book is not the exception to that.

    This was one of the best classes I have ever taken. Courtney gives the tools to allow you to critique each photo and see where its strengths lie. The PDF is thorough and chock full of information. I highly recommend this class to anyone looking to strengthen their abilities to honestly critique their own work and put together a thoughtful, high quality body of work.

    Introspection & Analysis was a life changing course for me and my work. It was incredibly thought provoking and guided me to really look deep into myself and my work. Courtney’s PDF was very easy to read and follow, so much so that I still refer to it time to time. She did a beautiful job in putting “pen to paper” to lead you on an incredible journey of self discovery that will inevitably make you grown on many different levels. I walked away a better photographer who is able to critic and read photographs and know how to build my portfolio.

    This breakout is exactly what every photographer needs. Courtney puts SO much of her heart, soul, time and effort into helping you become the artist you want to be. She helps you analyze every little detail within your portfolio and then gives you the tools you need in order to make it cohesive and eye catching. This is the most useful, beneficial, inspiring and helpful workshop I’ve ever taken! I so strongly recommend it!

    I took this workshop as a Study Along instead of a full participation seat, and I can promise that $75 is a steal for the amount of info you get! The cool thing is that the entire workshop is designed around who you are as an artist and how you want to grow. You won’t find that anywhere else!! And it doesn’t matter where you are in your journey. Courtney is amazing at walking you through the steps of analyzing your work and then getting you to go deeper with the questions she asks. By the end, you will walk away having grown, feeling confident, and ready for whatever your next step is!
